Syd Arthur

Syd Arthur is an english Canterbury based rock band. They are considered (new) members of the Canterbury scene and recently released their debut EP, Moving World.

History

Before settling on the name Syd Arthur, the band was called Grumpy Jumpers and then Moshka. The band’s live career dates back to 2006 and they’ve spent the years between then and their debut playing concerts, also at festivals, both in England and elsewhere in Europe. In 2009, they set up Wicker Studios, their own self-funded studio space on the outskirts of southeast London. During a hectic week at the end of 2010, they recorded what would be their first release, the Moving World EP. Moving World was released on the 28th of March 2011.

Trivia
